Red Bull Soundclash is a totally unique clash of sounds, styles and creativity, where two bands don't battle each other, but instead collaborate to create an innovative live music performance. The show features two bands with different music styles facing off on two stages positioned on opposite ends of the venue with the audience in the middle. In a series of four rounds, the bands perform various tasks, some rehearsed, and some improvised, to showcase the array of their musical abilities.
On New Year’s Eve, Miami’s Bayfront Park will be THE destination for music lovers as Red Bull Soundclash presents an incomparable live music showcase featuring a first-time ever match up between Ludacris and Mike Posner. The pre-show festivities begin at 7:00 p.m.. The main show begins at 9 p.m. and will culminate with a fireworks display and official countdown to the New Year. General admission is free and open to the public. A limited number of VIP upgrades are available for purchase.
Break It Down
The Red Bull Soundclash format takes each band through a series of collaborative challenges that makes it less of a battle and more of a musical conversation.
- 1st Round: The Cover - Each band plays their own version of the same cover song.
- 2nd Round: The Takeover - A collaborative round where one band will start to play one of their original tunes and mid-way through the other band takes over, seamlessly finishing the song in their own style
- 3rd Round: The Clash - This will challenge the band’s versatility as they’ll have to adapt their songs to whatever music genre the DJ is spinning
- 4th Round: The Wild Card – Each act brings a special guest on stage to join their performance.
